’s evolving look has been the source of much speculation.
Now comes word that the former Olympian’s change is for real and that
Bruce’s ultimate goal is to live life as a female.
‘Bruce is transitioning to a woman,’ a family insider confirmed to
People. ‘He is finally happy and his family is accepting of what he’s
doing. He’s in such a great space. That’s why it’s the perfect time to
do something like this.’

The 65-year-old has been pictured in recent days with manicured nails,
smooth legs, longer locks and what appeared to be fuller lips.The same source revealed that the Kardashian-Jenner family has been
allowed time to get used to the idea, and that they’re slowly accepting
his decision.

‘He’s being very smart about and also respectful about his transition,’
the insider said. ‘Instead of completely shocking everyone, his changes
have been subtle, and his family has had the chance to slowly get used
to his new looks and life.’

‘He has come out to those closest to him… He’s been through a dark
period and is coming out on the other side,’ added the insider.

Bruce Jenner has been changing
his appearance for months, leading to speculation that the former
Olympic athlete is becoming a woman.
A source for People magazine claims that’s exactly what’s happening, and that the 65-year-old reality dad is at peace with his decision.
“Bruce is transitioning to a
woman,” a source reportedly close to the Kardashian/Jenner family
claimed to the mag. “He is finally happy and his family is accepting of
what he’s doing. He’s in such a great space. That’s why it’s the perfect
time to do something like this.”
Another source claimed to the
mag that the docu-series chronicling his change “will air when he is
ready to be open about his transition.”
“But he’s acting more and more confident and seems very happy,” the second source added.
While Bruce’s new life hasn’t
always been an easy journey for his family to understand, the family
source said Bruce is now “so happy and excited” and that the family
hopes to “empower him” to tell his story.
“He gets to lay down a huge bag
of bricks,” the source claimed to the mag. “He’s been through a dark
period and is coming out on the other side.”

Bruce began to change his looks in 2013, when he grew his hair out and sported a ponytail. He now wears his long hair down.
The father of six has also been photographed wearing makeup and nail polish.
E!, the network which airs the family’s reality shows, had no comment
regarding the transition when contacted by Access Hollywood ,
while a rep for the Kardashians/Jenners was not immediately available
for comment.

 Bruce Jenner‘s family is now regularly leaking out
stories that have been obvious to all for quite some time … that the
Jenner patriarch is becoming a woman.

The latest leak is to
“People,” quoting a family source that Bruce is making the change.  As
we reported more than a year ago, Bruce underwent an operation called a
laryngal shave, to smooth out his Adam’s Apple, and at the time our
sources were clear … it was, as one put it, “one of the first steps.”

spoke to Bruce at the time and he said he was “absolutely not”
transitioning, but the denial was part of his plan to make the change
gradually, which he has done over the last year, to the point it simply
became obvious and an announcement became almost irrelevant.  But his
decision to transition had been firmly made months before.

sources say Bruce is now far along in the process, has undergone various
procedures and psychological counseling, and is ready to show his
journey to the world.  Our sources say it’s so far along his docuseries
will air as early as May.

People is reporting his family is
supportive but not all family members are on board 100%.  As we told
you, the family filmed Bruce’s formal announcement to them last month
and during the conversation Kris freaked out.  The other kids — the
boys and the girls — have been more supportive, especially the older

A leader in the transgender community tells TMZ they’ve
know for “way more than a year” Bruce was doing this and some felt he
should have announced it when he had the laryngal shave.  But we’re told
Bruce decided a gradual transition followed by a revelation would be
better for him and his family.

And we’re told part of the plan to
